“At Mazak, we are in a unique position to understand the changing needs and expectations of North American manufacturers, both as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ever-increasingly competitive business landscape,” said Dan Janka, president of Mazak Corp. “As a local manufacturer, we have challenged ourselves to be agile and find new ways of doing business. Our new digital experience applies what we’ve learned to provide unprecedented access to our products, technology, customer support and expertise, and most importantly, puts our customers in the driver’s seat.”
